WHSmith announced earlier today that they will be providing free Wi-Fi hotspots to 603 of its high street stores from today, the news comes after the company had teamed up with The Cloud who will be providing the free service.

Users who wish to use the Wi-Fi, will from today be able to log on for free within any participating store and access the web from their smartphone, laptop or any Wi-Fi capable device.

The aim of the free Wi-Fi is not so you can check your Facebook messages however, as WHSmith have envisaged this as a great way for shoppers to compare prices and read reviews whilst in the shop, providing a better service.

Once they have logged on, WHSmith will be providing this experience through their landing page, which will provide store information, special offers and much more.
